    1 Ranchu
  1. Awesome tank is that setup at the bottom of your bed? The goldfish owners dream, to wake up to goldies dancing at you! Lol.
  2. I believe theres laws in the UK which prevent giving out goldfish as prizes to children who are unsupervised by adults. It's not totally sorting the problem, and it's probably just to cover the carnivals back if they get complaints.
  3. Lovely looking fishies OrandaFan! How much would say they've grown since you've had them then?
  4. My Ranchu is beginning to change colour aswell, however, it's started to change more on the side than the bottom. Be quite nice to see other people's fishies aswell
  5. Hi Jayne, I live near Telford, Shropshire.
  6. That is a hefty Pearlscale! Looks like a golfball Awesome setup, think I'll follow suit with everyone else, ideas galore!
  7. Well done for creating such an awesome environment for your goldies!
  8. I don't like this much either, just makes whatever it clings on to look really dirty/manky. I gave it the boot on Tuesday
  9. Lovely looking Ranchu you have there! I think I might try the Hikari Lionhead food if it aids the growth like this! Very well done.
  10. I'm definately going to have one once I get a bigger tank, a chubby ranchu and a golfball pearly, awesome! Very well typed article, thank you for the insight
  11. I look forward to this! When would you expect the colour change to begin in the goldie's life?
  12. Should I look out for any certain brands?
  13. Yeah he does every now and then, he does slow down for a while and then he'll have a quick burst of energy. I'm afraid there's not much I can do about his tank size at the moment, but I will try a 50% percent change tomorrow. How about food, perhaps a bit of veg in the diet?
